Preview Per ESPN: The early season performances of Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott have gotten the attention of LSU coach Les Miles.

"Dak Prescott is as good a player as there is at his position in our conference," Miles said Monday, as preparations began for the No. 8 Tigers' Southeastern Conference opener against the Bulldogs on Saturday night. "He's a guy that stands back in the pocket and knows what he's looking at. He makes the throws and he has the ability to pull it down. He runs with strength.

"I don't know exactly how fast Prescott is, but he carves through the ground very quickly," Miles added. "When you go to tackle him, you better hit him hard. You better take him off his feet because he's just a big, physical kid."

The Tigers (3-0) have yielded just 94 passing yards per game in their victories against Wisconsin, Sam Houston State and Louisiana-Monroe. Quarterbacks from those three teams have combined to complete a mere 40 percent of passing attempts with no touchdowns and four interceptions.
